Park & wildlife safety
Wollaton Park is a large park home to a variety of wildlife, including two herds of wild deer, 90 Red and 120 Fallow. Please be aware of seasonal activity, such as deer rutting (September – November), calving (May – July) and times of the year when invertebrates may sting or bite in open spaces, such as wasps, ticks and horse-flies.
For safety keep aware of nature:
Remain close to paths and avoid long grassy areas.
Wear comfortable clothing & footwear at all times as the park can be muddy, particularly during rainy or icy weather and changeable seasons.
Keep a safe distance from the deer
Keep dogs on leads throughout the park. Owners of dogs worrying the deer may receive a fine of up to £1,000.
BBQs & fires are not permitted in the park, as they pose a danger to the wild deer and other wildlife.
Take litter home where possible.
Drones are not permitted except, see more about our drone policy below.
